already feel effects of the president healthcare reform law. tonight chief national correspondent jim angle on the unintended consequences that are very real. >> small business account for two-third of all new jobs but that may be changing as they attest the burden of obamacare which forces them to provide coverage if they employ more than 50 workers. >> not just any coverage but once size fits all got designed plan with the specified essential benefits. that will cost about twice as much as what many employers currently provide. on top of that, we have seen literally almost 100% increase in the last decade. for the small business premiums going up. how exactly does this law address this? it doesn't. >> one way to avoid the burden of the new law is keep the workforce below 50 employees or limit workers' hours to less than 30 per week, defined at part-time. incentive not to create more jobs. >> number one, don't hire. youent to want to get above 50. number two, don't let them work more. keep them part-time if possible. >> many businesses across the country are doing just that. 100 work
at the last second, you probably didn't do that great on. now to something else, president's healthcare law we are finding more about it as each day goes by. there is two day symposium to train journalists how to report on it sponsored by the commonwealth fund who president is david blumenthal. something tells me among the speakers you won't find this lady, former state lieutenant governor, she is a frequent critic of obamacare and she has a new book out "beating obamacare." when you went to the symposium who understand the law so they can report on it, you got more than a bad law issue? >> that's right. i laughed when i heard about the symposium because the left leaning commonwealth fund is noted for slanting its research to support that view and commonwealth fund is being run by david blumenthal one of chief architects of it. so it won't be balanced. the commonwealth fund is largely responsible for the misconceptions and incorrect information that led many members of congress to vote for this giant law without ever reading it. i'll give you an example. one day on the floor of senate, senator

. >> we sure will, jon. jenna: new fallout over the president's healthcare laws. many small businesses and nonprofits take steps to try to deal with what they are calling a financial and bureaucratic burden. that could mean cutting back workers, maybe cutting back hours of workers, or hiring fire people. jim ingle is looking into this from washington. jim, as small businesses, small employers look at this new healthcare law, what are they telling you about some of the burdens that they say they are going to face? >> reporter: well, more and more of them, jenna are looking at what the new healthcare law will mean for them, and learning that what they do now will affect them later because the irs says it will penalize businesses based not on next year's employment when the law makes effect, but this year's employment. if a business has mourn 50 employees it has to provide insurance or pay a penalty. if employees work more than 30 hours they must be giving insurance. that is very expensive, even prohibitive for many small businesses. listen. >> there were three bad incentives from the lab
